This morning, Taylor Swift showed the world why we still need feminism.

What's she talking about? According to Buzzfeed, a shady tweet and a pointed intro from OK! Magazine.

The tweet in question, which seems to be edited now (drama!), made it sound like Taylor Swift was pregnant, which she is not.

Singer @taylorswift13 has made a 'pregnancy announcement'! http://t.co/7sBjr7MZ1i
— OK_Magazine (@OK! Magazine)

It links to an article about Swift helping two of her fans announce their soon-to-be-born baby.

Okay, OK! We see what you did there.

Then, in the article, Swift is initially introduced as "Harry Styles' ex-girlfriend" and is later referred to as "Calvin Harris' rumoured girlfriend." Honestly, it seems like OK! Magazine is desperately trying to neg TSwift. Could this magazine be any more threatened by her success? Try to just be comfortable with yourself, OK! Magazine, and then you won't feel like you need to minimize the success of people who are more powerful than you.

Swift quickly responded by calling out the tabloid and standing up for women everywhere. My, how far we've come as a society since the days when Lena Dunham taught her about feminism!
